What We’re Doing and Why

Our region’s growth is a sign of success and opportunity, but it also means that our transportation networks are at their limit. You want to spend more time living and less time commuting - that’s why Metrolinx is building transit in and around your community as part of the largest transit infrastructure program in Canadian history. It’s all part of the plan to keep our region moving today and tomorrow.

Metrolinx & The Regional Transportation Plan

At Metrolinx, we’re working to shape our regional transportation system so it’s modern, efficient and integrated. Even if you don’t take transit regularly, you’ll experience less traffic congestion and you’ll be able to take transit during the times you don’t want to drive. More public transportation throughout our region will bring us a higher quality of life, a sustainable environment and a strong, prosperous and competitive economy.

The work we’re doing to transform how we move throughout region is guided by the Regional Transportation Plan. The goal of the plan is to provide you with more connections and better service regardless of how you choose to get around.

Transit is the pulse of our economy, our spirit and our future. Let’s plan the transportation network we want today so we can live the life we want tomorrow.

What’s In It For You?

We’re working on many transformational projects to better connect our communities. This includes Light Rail Transit (LRT) in Toronto (on Eglinton and Finch), Mississauga and Hamilton. It also includes the transformation of the GO rail network to bring you all-day, two-way service every 15-minutes.

Creating a modern and efficient transportation system is our ultimate goal but it can’t be achieved without causing some inconvenience. The people who live in this region are at the heart of everything we do. As we build in and around your communities, we promise to keep you informed, to make sure disruptions are kept to a minimum, and that projects are completed in a timely fashion.
